It was a family event that we’ve all wanted to go and check this place out, and I gotta say it did not disappoint, something for everyone of all ages….. We enjoyed a nice lunch at a reasonable price, however the adult beverages were quite a bit pricey. Overall it was a great visit and educational for the young ones as well, we will definitely be coming back !

We had a blast using this pass- every place was able to scan us in except legoland you had to go to the ticket counter to have the tickets printed from this pass, and the wheel at icon park also. Other than that it worked amazingly easy and we got into every place no problem! Worth every penny

You need to wait on a security line to check bags, but it moves and they scan the code and you are in! simple and hassle free.

I am disabled and the FL Aquarium was accessible in all areas. Great smaller Aquarium for families and school groups.

Very advantageous for 5 days, just group and we do a lot, plus great getyouguide service
